Ben Robinson

Deputy Principal & Chief Executive

Ben Robinson is responsible for heading up the College’s curriculum, as well as supporting “an extremely exciting period of continued evolution”.

Ben oversees the progression of the College’s learners, ensure outstanding practice in classrooms and feed into the progressive culture across the whole Group, which comprises the core further education college, the technical skills training provider TTE and the apprenticeship training specialist Northern Skills.

Having worked in education for more than 20 years, Ben brings a genuine passion for teaching, learning and mentoring to the position as well as extensive experience from previous roles in the sector – including his time as the strategic lead for personal development, behaviours and attitudes and education programmes for young people across the Education Training Collective (etc.)

He said: “Middlesbrough College is leading the way when it comes to further education in our region as an influencer of FE policy, an early adapter of T Levels and a leading delivery partner in the North East Institute of Technology. That’s in addition to its ongoing investment in STEM subjects as well as its work with local employers – who wouldn’t want to be part of it? And on a personal level, the College also sits at the heart of the town I spent much of my youth which makes this move even more special.”
